LibriVox recording of Tender Buttons, by Gertrude Stein. Read by Cori Samuel.
"The time came when there was a birthday. Every day was no excitement and a birthday was added, it was added on Monday, this made the memory clear, this which was a speech showed the chair in the middle where there was copper."
"A kind of green a game in green and nothing flat nothing quite flat and more round, nothing a particular color strangely, nothing breaking the losing of no little piece."
"The teasing is tender and trying and thoughtful."
Extracts from Tender Buttons.
